Sao Paulo: Nicknamed the Phenomenon for goalscoring exploits that won Brazil the 2002 FIFA World Cup, Ronaldo is all set to be one of the themes of next month's Sao Paulo carnival.
The Gavioes da Fiel samba school has chosen the former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter star as their theme to mark the Cup returning to Brazil after 64 years.
The parade group will pay homage to Ronaldo's stellar career from his childhood in a poor Rio suburb to him being an inspiration to millions of Brazilian youngsters.
